Taylor Made Swirl Super Gard: PDB TESTED No. 174

August 2015 PDB Tested

Taylor Made is to fenders what Kraft is to soccer moms—this manufacturer is well-known in the industry for their products. If you haven’t yet gotten an up-close look at their fenders, stroll onto any given dock and you’ll find them.

They’re especially easy to spot now thanks to the bright color swirl design that makes them pop from among their traditional white counterparts. Ergo, Swirl Super Gard fenders is the name, protecting your boat with style is their game.

These inflatable vinyl fenders show the same innovative attention to detail as the standard line. The valve seats are integrally molded into the fender rather than glued in like their competitors. The black ends are double-molded for extra strength and the rubber football needle valve makes for easy inflation. And Taylor Made pulls no punches with its straightforward lifetime guarantee of, “If it fails we’ll replace it!”

While we obviously haven’t tested them for a lifetime yet (we’re not that old), they must be darn durable or Taylor Made would be replacing fenders right and left. With prices settling from $34.99 to $99.99 for 5.5-by-20-inch through 10.5-by-30-inch dimensions, these are a great lifetime investment.

And besides, who isn’t cheered up at the sight of a little cotton candy fluff? Maybe it’s just the circus kid in me.
